How to Address Security and Integration Concerns with Enterprise Information Management

OpenText, a global leader in Enterprise Information Management (EIM), has launched a secure solution to share and synchronise both personal and enterprise content across different platforms and devices, named Tempo Box Premium Edition.

With many corporate users now turning to consumer-oriented solutions to collaborate both within and outside their organisations, increasing security, governance and integration concerns must be addressed.

Tempo Box Premium Edition for SAP Solutions will provide a centralised platform enabling mobile access to both personal and enterprise content, in a modular and scalable manner. With this approach, both IT and business users will be able to improve collaboration with file sync-and-share capabilities that meet enterprise-grade content security and compliance needs.

"Non-sanctioned and ungoverned file sharing, along with decentralised content, poses high risk to companies and is a growing concern for CIOs," said Adam Howatson, Chief Marketing Officer, OpenText. "To combat the issue, companies are tasked with providing the same easy content access and sharing, but through a secure, governed and compliant content platform controlled by the company. With Tempo Box Premium Edition for SAP Solutions, we are able to help meet this need by offering these organisations the flexibility and efficiencies of mobile and desktop access, without exposing them to risk from content shared on consumer sites."

Tempo Box has been designed to act as a natural extension for SAP customers who have deployed or plan to deploy OpenText Extended ECM for SAP Solutions. Tempo Box Premium Edition for SAP Solutions provides users that don't also own a license of Extended ECM the ability to view enterprise content that is connected to a business workspace in Extended ECM.

With Tempo Box Premium Edition, Extended ECM customers will be able to further extend the reach of content tied to business processes running in SAP software to non-SAP software users, which can include both internal users as well as unlimited external users such as customers, suppliers and partners.

Customers will, in-turn, be able to extend their existing content management environment with an integrated file share-and-sync solution, to collaborate on both enterprise and personal content across the organisation and across all device types.

OpenText Tempo Box Premium Edition will also feature a modern and compelling user experience for accessing, sharing and synchronising documents across PC and mobile devices, such as smartphones and tablets. Additionally, users will be able to keep documents more secure and attached to the business process for increased productivity, and reduce corporate risks by supporting compliance with proper controls and retention of enterprise documents.

Combining secure, automated capture, storage and organisation of documents with transparent archiving, records management and imaging functionality, OpenText Extended ECM for SAP Solutions has been built to manage content throughout its entire lifecycle.The solution will help mitigate risk, while enhancing productivity and information accessibility. Through the OpenText and SAP partnership, customers can made dramatic improvements across a wide range of areas that positively impact relationships with customers, employees, partners, suppliers and regulatory agencies.
